Interbike Eight: Ellsworth to Colnago

Interbike 2009-94-1

How can you not love Sock Guy and its sense of humour?

Interbike 2009-85-1

Ellsworth Roots cyclocross bike

Interbike 2009-83-1

The intricate back end of the Ellsworth Englightenment, carbon 29er

Interbike 2009-81-1

Many Ellsworth bikes get a new curvier frame compared to the straight tubes of yesteryear. Strangely, we've seen other companies going back to more normally shaped tubes to save weight.

Interbike 2009-80

Ellsworth Glimpse - a complete bike for sale (in the US at least, we're not sure about the UK yet)

Interbike 2009-79

Sometimes carbon frames struggle to match the aesthetics of alloy tubes.

Interbike 2009-78

The oddly curved Ellsworth Enlightenment carbon 29er hardtail. It's not doing it for us, sorry.

Interbike 2009-76

All the colours of a funny rainbow...

Interbike 2009-75

Ergon grips - now available in cork.

Interbike 2009-74

Ernesto Colnago himself - he has a wicked comb-over...

Interbike 2009-73

Prototype Kenda tyre tread of their new 'Slant Six' style. A slightly knobbier Small Block Eight then.

Interbike 2009-69

Knog are pressing hard to become the darlings of the urban/fixie movement. Here's there very sleek new U-lock.

Interbike 2009-68

...and an equally smart cable and padlock.

Interbike 2009-67

Now there's no excuse for not being able to do up your Torx bolts. This tool from Genuine Innovations covers everything from tiny bleed port bolts to FSA chainring bolts.

Interbike 2009-66

A simple rubber sleeve, but one that easily slides onto the CO2 canister. Again from G-I.

Interbike 2009-64

A little excessive perhaps, but could be good for longer races - this Genuine Innovations mount can hold up to four gas cartridges securely; even if you've used a couple, the others won't rattle loose.

Interbike 2009-63

The mountain bike version of Genuine Innovations' Second Wind pump. The handle is the CO2 cartridge (full or empty) and the head can be used for hand pumping or CO2 inflation.

Interbike 2009-52

More jerseys and tees from Twin Six, who make a mean non-team jersey for those who want some colour, but don't want to be wearing bike company logos.

Interbike 2009-51

Great wet paint job from Vicious Cycles.

Interbike 2009-50

Not just a 'me too' bike - Vicious showed a snow bike back in 2001

Interbike 2009-49

One for the purists - a lugged, celeste painted Bianchi road bike.

Interbike 2009-48

And a flat bar town bike too...

Interbike 2009-47

Salsa will have a fat fork coming out for big tyres, complete with two bottle cage mounts (well, four - there are high and low options) along with rack mounts too.

Interbike 2009-46

If you've seen our Surly video - this is how the cheese board started life.

Interbike 2009-44

Salsa's ultra wide, 11degree bar wins the 'Singeltrack best handlebar name award' - the Whammy Bar.

Interbike 2009-41

Chrome has four new styles of shoes coming out, including a high-top and a more thermal (than usual) model.

Interbike 2009-40

It may not look exciting, but the Pedro's chain tool can cope with everything from BMX to Campag 11speed chains thanks to a revolving chuck and a well-supported driver pin.

Interbike 2009-39

A quirky tool from Pedro's is this quick release that includes a chain tool - so you need only carry your Allen keys on your road bike and you'll still be covered.

Interbike 2009-37

Version Three of the Pedro's toolkit. Which home mechanic doesn't want one? It now comes in a rugged, waterproof Peli-style case. Gone are the headset spanners, to be replaced by more relevant tools.

Interbike 2009-31

You have to be serious about your performance to justify some Ritchey carbon tubular wheels and Dugast tubs - but who doesn't want to run 20psi?

Interbike 2009-29

Adventure racers, cyclocrossers and trail cyclists are all after running shoes with cleats, or cycling shoes that you can run/walk in. Pearl Izumi makes a style for each side of that divide. Here's the 'running shoe with cleat' version.

Interbike 2009-27

A rather football-boot style of race shoe from Pearl Izumi. Pearl are now owned by Shimano (if you didn't know) and now share the same footwear factory.

Interbike 2009-25

Yes, these Pearl Izumi shorts really are THAT vented. Also available in black for those who don't live in a desert.

Interbike 2009-24

We saw a lot of tweed style fabrics being used for more casual looking cycling clothes.

Interbike 2009-23

Sometimes it pays to go home the long way from Dirt Demo. Here's Chipps in rare tourist mode.

Interbike 2009-22

Pearl Izumi is 60 - and had M&Ms made to celebrate...

Interbike 2009-19

Just to reassure those folk who were scared by the new Camelbak colours. They're still making 'normal' colours on their other bags.
